A group of grad students at the University of Maryland are fighting for maternity and paternity leave to be written into the schools laws.

Currently, at the school, students can apply for one semester off – however they risk getting taken off student health insurance or losing their visa for school. They also risk receiving student loan bills early.

Many school campuses have begun offering family housing on campus, however there is still room for the schools involved to grow.

Thoughts?
